The Constitutional Crisis Be– Look! Squirrel!

Updated 7/26/19 @ 1:59 p.m.

It is safe to say that the United States is officially facing a constitutional crisis and a massive cover up by certain members of the GOP to protect President Trump. A political hit job that would make Sammy “The Bull” Gravano proud.

Mark July 25, 2018 on your calendars as one of the darkest days in our democracy, where partisan politics and staying in office four more years supersedes the good of the country. The words of John McCain stand true today as much as ever: “country over party.”

*****

When President Trump was heard on the now infamous Access Hollywood/Billy Bush tape saying “grab them by the #####,” Hillary Clinton’s boring hacked emails were released thanks to Wiki-leaks’ Julian Assange.

Since the first day that President Trump bullied his way into the White House and sent Sean Spicer to do his first press conference where somehow with a straight face he managed to say that Trump had the largest audience ever at the inauguration (period!), Trump and his inner circle of Charles Manson-like cult followers started working hard on trying to one-up the media and control the narrative.

When Michael Cohen’s secretly taped conversation with President Trump was released, no doubt one of the the biggest political scandals this country has ever witnessed, it lasted twenty-four hours.

Impeachment Proceedings

House Freedom Caucus representatives Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan, you know, the grumpy looking representative from Ohio that always has his sleeves rolled up and tie knot loose, trying to convey a subliminal message that he is working hard.

If he only worked half as hard at figuring out the sexual abuse allegations that totals more former athletes at Ohio State University than most of us have friends on Facebook.

Anyway, to one up the Presidential scandal of paying off porn star Stormy Daniels, and now former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, an obvious violation of campaign finance laws, Meadows and Jordan has filed a resolution to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

What is This About?

If you don’t know what this is about, remove your myopic political lenses, because this is as embarrassing and disgusting as a political tactic that we have ever seen displayed publicly. If you don’t believe me, speak to someone from a banana republic and don’t be surprised when they draw comparisons.

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is getting closer to figuring out to what extend Trump, his family, and his campaign colluded with Russia.

 

Twelve Russians were indicted on a Friday with President Trump meeting President Putin for the super secret Helsinki Summit the following Monday. The same summit that Trump sold out the United States Intelligence Community over the word of a foreign enemy power.

 

The Robert Mueller Investigation
Do we know anything about the Robert Mueller investigation? Just that we are three months behind his next move.

 

From day one, Mueller and his team of prosecutors have been playing chess like grandmaster Bobby Fischer, while the rest of us are playing checkers and the Trump administration is running around like Keystone Cops.

Mueller no doubt holds the key to unlocking the corruption of this presidency, which means, he has a target on his back.

 

However, it’s been clear not only by Democrats, but also Republicans, that Mueller cannot be fired. That would be the F5 constitutional tornado that would destroy our democracy. So, how do you get rid of Mueller? You get rid of Rod Rosenstein!
****

Rosenstein was appointed by President Trump and Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Mueller (by the way, Rosenstein and Mueller are Republicans).

In a move to cut the head off the dragon, if Trump can fire Rosenstein, Mueller disappears because whatever flunkie replaces Rosenstein, will know that he is getting the job with one, and only one condition: he has to fire Rosenstein.

 

Remember, Trump values loyalty more than he does competence. But, what he fails to realize is that loyalty wavers and you only have to look towards Michael Cohen for confirmation.

 

The media and politicians have repeatedly said that firing Mueller would lead the country into a constitutional crisis and they are right. However, we are already in a constitutional crisis that sneaked in through the backdoor, and guess who left the door open?

 

Now, will Rosenstein be impeached? Highly unlikely, but a distraction is needed. At least it’s better than starting a war with Iran over tweets.
